Hotel Relais Grunwald
Ranked #16 of 18 Hotels in Cavalese
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Our stay in this hotel was a biggest disappointment in Cavalese. It's a three star hotel but no way four. First of all it was very cold in a room thought it wasn't too much cold outside. My sport watches equipped with thermometer so I can stay fact that by morning temperature in the room dropped to 16 degrees!!! Hotel switches on radiators only for a few hours in the evening. Even then it was a way too cold. And this is a sky hotel. That was a real challenge to get our clothes dry for next day on only one just warm radiator. Yes, they have a sky room but only for skying equipment.
Hotel's big advert is a swimming pool and sauna. It is based underground, very small, and always overcrowded. As I could recognize by language 99% of visitors were Italians with a very low sauna
culture. Almost nobody took shower before entering sauna or steam room, didn't use towels, could keep door open to call or speak with somebody and didn't take shower after sauna before going into pool.
Breakfast was one of the poorest I ever saw. EVERYDAY absolutely the same. Only one kind of cheese and cheap ham. Ok, there were yogurts in caps, cruasans and corn flakes. But, I repeat absolutely same for whole week. Fried eggs were usually cold and not enough for all visitors.
That was a breakfast for skiers.
Hotel is very close to Alpe Cermis lift, but everything is in a working distance in Cavalese. Considering very good arrangement of sky buses it's not a big advantage of this hotel.
WiFi Internet was available on our floor but we manage to connect only once. Otherwise it worked fine in lobby. Strange, but one of routers was placed outside entrance. For whom?
Grunwald is a Alpe style reasonable hotel but not for the value of money they want.

The hotel is placed in a very quiet street. 20 cars can be parked by the hotel, others has parking in 150 meters. The double rooms are small with balcony and with small bathroom. The stuff are wery friendly and helpful. They cleand every day with a vacuum cleaner, change towels... The breakfast would be more richer, but for us it was enough. The dinner was a la carte-like. We have to choose the meals day before. Taste was average. Drinks have to be payed. The pool 3x10 m and sauna are in the basement. The location is very good, because the ropeway station is in walking distance (300m) and the city centre with shops, restaurants and caffes too. We like the Betty cafe with panetaria. If you want go to other ski resorts, the ski bus stoped in 150 m from the hotel. In appearance to the location and service is the value of a week vacation very good, but not a 4 star level.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 1 st. floor. It is near to the ski room, breakfast room and to the pool.
